PEP (Parents Encouraging Parents) Moms is a fellowship time for mothers of children of all ages. Whether you have a newborn at home or are trying to cut the apron strings with your high schooler, motherhood can be joyful, frustrating, and lonely at times, and that’s why PEP Moms was established.

Our goals are to:
  • Provide opportunities for spiritual and emotional growth in a Christian-based format;
  • Encourage positive and practical ideas on parenting, marriage, and family relationships;
  • Develop close friendships and promote fun and fellowship;
  • Leave the meetings feeling valued, supported, and energized

Registration is now open. To register, download the form at the bottom of this page and drop it by our Welcome Center on Sunday.
